Description


The sky is falling with this complete collection of history's greatest end-of-the-world predictions!

Every time you scan the news, it feels as though the world is hurtling toward its end. While no one knows whether that is actually true or not, A History of the End of the World makes it clear that this inclination toward apocalyptic thinking has been present throughout human history, guiding some of its most powerful personages and brightest minds. Paced by frightful prophecies, catastrophic predictions, startling science, suspenseful storytelling, and epic illustrations, A History of the End of the World frames humanity’s obsession with the Armageddon like never before, providing valuable insight into our nature.
